Much of the news we have featured over the last couple of days has come thanks to the currently running Gamescom entertainment show in Cologne. HEXUS has concentrated mainly on the big hardware releases with the launch of Intel Skylake processors for the desktop, plus platform supporting components such as motherboards and RAM, and quite a few PC gaming peripherals. But what of the games?

We did report on the immediately prior-to-Gamescom special event by Microsoft and a number of Xbox One and PC titles that were announced but since then there have been lots more juicy trailers published by the big gaming companies, vying for attention for their upcoming AAA releases. Below you will find some of the best game trailers for titles destined for the PC platform.

Ubisoft published the Anno 2205 - Explore a new world yesterday. This is a PC exclusive city building title. It's pre-orderable right now. Ubisoft have had quite a presence at Gamescom and the following PC games also got new trailers to heighten gamer expectation:

Assassin's Creed Syndicate

The Crew: Wild Run

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Might & Magic Heroes VII

Big publisher EA also, of course, has a number of games it is showing off at Gamescom. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst was treated to a new trailer. Watch the video below from 2 minutes 15s onwards.

Pre-Order, Pre-Order, Pre-Order…. Exclusive content, Exclusive content and so on and so forth.

I know many people will just find my opinion pointless but surely we have had enough evidence by now from the games industry that pre-ordering only serves to hurt the consumer.

Im sure some of these games will be ok but im also betting a large % will not be and probably a couple wont even look like they do in these trailers, even tho you will be pre ordering based on them :)
There was me thinking Bloodborne was Dark Souls III.
Namix

Pre-ordering helps a studio know how popular a game will be, so they know how many resources they can put into development etc.
I hope this becomes a trend.

It helped me catch on the trailers I missed without hearing about how many consoles were sold or how companies “really listen” to the average gamer.
Looking forward to
Rainbow six
Mirrors edge
Star wars

Is it me or Faith grunts too much ?
